More convenient transportation is connecting Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei closer, laying the foundation for integrated regional development.

More than 800 roads and expressways have been upgraded in the three places. Several new rail projects were completed, such as the extension of the intercity railway between Beijing and Tianjin, the rail between Tianjin and Baoding in Hebei, and the one linking the cities of Zhangjiakou and Tangshan in Hebei.

By 2018, more than 40 inter-province bus lines, totaling 2,800 km in length, had been in operation between Beijing and 17 neighboring districts or cities in Hebei.

The high-speed railway line connecting Beijing and Zhangjiakou, Hebei, will be in operation this year, while the expressway between Beijing's Yanqing District and Zhangjiakou's Chongli, two major venues for the 2022 Winter Olympics, will also begin service, according to the government of Hebei.

Construction on a high-speed railway connecting Tianjin and Beijing's new airport in Daxing District will start in 2019, according to the municipal government of Tianjin.

More connectivity is also expected in the air. The Beijing Daxing International Airport, sitting at the junction of Beijing's Daxing District and Langfang in Hebei, has recently completed several flight checks.

The Tangshan airport in Hebei has been expanded, and the Cangzhou airport in Hebei has been put into use. A strong and coordinated air transport system is to be established in the area.
